The Forecast Scorpio 2013
You don’t need an astrologer to tell you what a major year this is for you. 2013 is dominated by Watery planets and Saturn in your sign. Added to this is the influence of the North Node of the Moon. From October 2012 you may have sensed the intensity build, bringing you to the biggest potential challenge and/or payoff you have had in a very long while. Events for you this year are likely to be karmically oriented, high impact and geared toward maximum growth.
The year kicks off as it intends to end, with a hardcore focus on reality and truth. January opens up with your ruler Pluto in close connection to the Sun. Staring down the barrel of who you are and where you are at is the theme for your New Year. If you are happy with the answer, then great -continue to forge ahead. But if you are not so pleased with the truth at hand then resolve to change your current path. With every aspect of your life under major scrutiny now you might as well be honest with yourself and the people in your life. January offers little room for self-avoidance, so helping you sort the wheat from the chaff.
This need to keep it real continues throughout the year. From October 2012 until mid 2015, Saturn moves through your sign and helps you to grow. The kind of growth you can expect to see will depend upon your Self. Saturn’s lessons may not be easy but they are always worth it in the end. Therefore, for some of you there will be obstacles, challenges or conflicts along the way. Concrete obstructions should be seen as symbolic of what you need to learn about yourself. Understanding the purpose behind current limitations is a valuable lesson that will improve your life in many ways. Giving up is not the answer. Instead you need to endure. Saturn tests your mettle, but also helps to make you strong.
On the other hand, this year can also bring achievement, responsibility and status. Finally, after years of hard work your just rewards come. Whatever consolidates for you now is representative of what you have earned. When Saturn travels through your sign you can expect justice and hard work. While you may be promoted, this is not the time to rest. You need to demonstrate diligence, perseverance and groundedness to show you are deserving of everything you get.
Mid year, a Grand Water Trine forms to bring illumination into your life. July provides much scope for growth and personal meaning, as the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of experience are opened up. 2013 is dominated by subjective overtones as Saturn is joined by Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron and Mars in Water signs. This creates emotional intensity, but also empathy and depth. The Grand Water Trine will help everyone peer beneath the apparent differences that bob around on the surface, to find a level of unity emerging from the deep. For you, this confirms the source of your power, and provides nourishing energies for your soul. Take time out for self-renewal.
In addition, one of your greatest strengths is your ability to find light in the darkness, and so help yourself and others to transform. Offering solace without judgement is a powerful Scorpio tool.
Late September is especially useful as Saturn meets up with the Lunar Nodes, and brings to the surface what is latent and yet to manifest. Expect more clarity around any area of uncertainty, or a confirmation about your intended path. Events occurring around this time are especially meaningful, and for some of you this will feel like fate. Major developments are happening this year, and they will have an impact on your life for many years to come. As always, your gut instinct is your greatest asset and guide. Let your intuition lead you toward whatever answers that you need, and more than ever trust in your own process.
